Happy Thanksgiving Beauties! Today I thought I’d share this cranberry face scrub recipe. I remember making this with my mom the day after Thanksgiving back when I was in high school. My mother and I have always bonded over beauty and baking. I love her so much for sharing her knowledge of both with me.
Cranberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and are loaded with antioxidants. Vitamin C helps brighten and clarify your skin. Cranberries are also a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory – this means they are great at cleaning and healing the skin.

1/4 cup sugar

2 tbsp oatmeal
Blend the cranberries and oatmeal in a blender or food processor. Combine the mixture with the rest of the ingredients. Apply to face and body in a circular motions then rinse. For an extra boost of radiance – leave the scrub on your face for 5 minutes then rinse.
Alba Botanica is a great brand that only offers all natural, 100% vegetarian beauty products. Their new Sea Algae Enzyme Scrub from their Natural Even Advanced line is a gentle scrub that will help you improve your completion. Walnut shell powder is added to help scrub away any dullness or uneven skin tone issues you may have. This exfoliator feels finer than most other scrubs, it feels like fine sand and is not harsh. It’s also formulated with sea algae enzymes which help stimulate cell regeneration. That’s not all, the ingredients list features a wealth of other good for you natural ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba oil, and grapefruit extracts, just to name a few. It smells good too, like a fresh botanical soap. My face felt nice and smooth after using it. All Alba Botanica products are paraben-free, sulfate-free, Phthalates-free, and never tested on animals.
Most skincare companies offer some sort of tool that cleanses your face. For example, the Neautrogena wave sonic and the Clarisonic, both clean your pores while making wrinkles and lines less noticeable. If you like those, then you will enjoy this all natural recipe because it works in the same way, but instead you get to use a tomato! I got this recipe from watching the Dr. Oz Show. I’m a fan of the show, he usually features good tips on weight loss and anti aging secrets.
Tomato Sugar Face Scrub
- 1 Tomato
- 1 Tbsp Sugar
Cut tomato in half and dip it in the sugar. Next, rub your face with the tomato in a circular motion. Leave it on for ten minutes and then rinse.
Why it works: Tomatoes have lycopene in them, that’s what gives it its deep red color. Lycopene is an antioxidant that helps protects your skin from dangerous UV sun rays and it also prevents wrinkles by maintaining your skin’s elasticity. Sugar is also great for your skin because it’s a natural humectant. Humectants help retain moisture, so the sugar helps pull moisture into your skin and keep it there.
